>> yes, i know that we didn't plan to discuss this. but there are lots of indications. they were stronger earlier on that iran was willing to see some kind of a change in syria. what they really wanted was not bashar al-assad as a person. they had certain interest and if those interested in how be taken into account, they might consider them. but we are not even talking to them about that. so my problem is the deal with nuclear weapons, it's insufficient on the issue of nuclear weapons itself. and it's not at all comprehensive and that the real problem is the behavior in the region and is hezbollah in the confrontation with saudi arabia. not even talking to them about these issues. if we were, you would at least have a chance. i'm not saying that we
8:21am
necessarily would succeed. but i think that there were lots of voices from the region and elsewhere early on saying that you need to come to them with a proper proposition. and we haven't been able to do that. >> i think it's a sad situation. it might be a little bit different from the iranian nuclear deal, but i think it's a good thing. i support it. the democratic struggle is the subject of the book that we did previously. democratic activists support this between iran and the u.s. for interesting reasons. but on that deal, it might actually be working against the possibility of progress in syria. in other words, can the human rights make this argument that because of this fragile deal,
8:22am
it's very cautious and very reluctant to push them on these issues like syria. this is not the moment for that. the tragedy is that these are two good things. it would be good to get them to push syria in the direction of allowing the caravans in for example. it's also very good to strike the nuclear deal with iran, but these two things are actually working against one another and they are at odds with one another. that is tragic. >> yemeni last comments? >> my last comment on the last point is really thank you all for coming. for those people that thought that syria doesn't matter, i'm here to tell you that it actually does. we need to take this much more seriously and we need to have a serious national debate in this country about syria. affecting not only the middle east but also affecting the world. and i'm hoping that this will be a start of a longer set of what
8:23am
should be done and what could be done to stop the killing. >> dan's book is for sale out there. it's about a lot of experts writing on the syria conundrum. so it's interesting also looking at who the authors are in the arguments they have assembled. please join me in thanking the authors. [applause] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> you're watching the tv on c-span2. here's our primetime lineup for tonight.
8:24am
beginning at 30:00 p.m. eastern, a panel the russian on the monuments men, followed by a discussion from last week. and then we had "after words", author of the loudest voice in the room. then we have jim barrett describing the final invention. artificial intelligence and the end of the human era. and we wrap up tonight's programming at 10:45 p.m. what paul kengor, who wrote "eleven principles of a reagan conservative." that happens tonight on booktv. >> i believe we started in 1933, the day after prohibition ended. so 25 other wineries lineup of law rest. we are at the only one still in business today. oregon has a rich history for the wine industry.
8:25am
the wine is where we add the variety with great varietals in the 70s. so we have produced specialty wines with what is rich with fruit orchard and berries and there is kind of a grape boom and the grapes were growing and i think that the struggle but a lot of them had early on was the regulation coming in more strong for label regulations and production and all of those things. and i think that that we can get some. over the '30s, 40s and part
8:26am
of the 50s, customers can come in and try it. one of the neat things about this was the secretary at the time who then bought it, she actually went to lobby for tasting rooms. so we hold one of the first tasting rooms because of her. and i think the that opened it up and made it a lot easier. so it can make it a little bit hard to make a decision. i've read about how it's definitely a big part of the economy. not just the ever cultural economy, but a lot of wineries that do large events and weddings and restaurants and the kind of reaches out further than just production of wine. it really touches everyone in some way. but it's grown so much and that such a large part of oregon. i think the one industry is unique in the fact that there's
8:27am
a lot of small wineries and you get that really personal feel with everything. usually when you go into a tasting room you'd talk to though winemaker or the owner, and you really don't get that personal touch outside of the state. and we are not small and production, but just small enough deal, we take it very personally and seriously and very family oriented. honeywood winery, that is how we run the business. it's an intimate feeling compared to other oregon wineries. >> here's a look at some books are being published this week. a journalist and two-time number of the provincial assembly, humaria awais shahid, "devotion and defiance: my journey in love, faith, and politics", my journey in love and faith and politics. in the book by jim demint,
8:28am
current president and ceo of the heritage foundation, presented.on "falling in love with america again." ezekiel emanuel, writes on how the a portable care act is changing health care and presents his predictions on future trends in "reinventing american healthcare." how the affordable care act will improve our error-prone system. and then peniel joseph talks about his book, "stokely: a life", recounting the life of stokely carmichael. it will be our future at noon eastern on "in depth." and paul kengor brings us "eleven principles of a reagan conservative." his recent talk from the reagan
8:29am
ranch in santa barbara, california, airs this sunday at 10:45 p.m. eastern this sunday on booktv. and "the tyrrany of experts", william easterly provides data that shows the best way to end global poverty is to preserve individual freedoms and prevent unchecked state powers. look for these books and watch for the authors in the near future on booktv and on booktv.org. >> i think there are some myths out there. they think it's some are actively preserved product and it's really not. and it's no different than the types of sulfites that you use in making wines. so i wouldn't call it a healthy product, but i would call it something that is a tasty treat.
8:30am
>> as you see, cherries and the various stages. even though we put them in water, they still have wine in the fruit. so they go through an extensive washing in the process of making maraschino is really basically taking that fruit in the brine and soaking it in a stronger sugar with a stronger solution. and part of that dental, you will see the color intensity picked up. so you can see here is some fruit that is very early in the process. it is lightly colored, the darker color is much farther along. trying to give you an idea. yellow, pink, deep red. it's just that cycle of that in the
